Good but too expensive for the quality

Good but too expensive for the quality. 2 bottles of regular Pinot Grigio since they couldn't provide advice. Cold and hot starters for 6. And 2 deserts. All that for 612$

My wife and I were directed by our hotel concierge (Park Hyatt) to this restaurant for very good seafood. When we arrived we were sat but then didnt recieve a menu for 15 min! First off the bread was very ordinary. The salad was very blah. We ordered an octopus appetizer and unfortunately it was very plain with no presentation.... More

Recommended by a work colleague. Good food, wine , but the bill was incredible. Worked out to around £300 for two. Colleague was horrified when I told her - think there's one set of prices for tourists and another for locals.

Ignore the negative reviews as we did and you will be pleasantly surprised. Service is outstanding and unpretentious. Ali who served us was a delight and recommended us dishes which were outstanding. Some of the dishes on the money can be a little pricey but not all of them. In short outstanding seafood, attentive service and stunning views all in... More

Hands down some of the best seafood I have ever eaten, from the lakerda and mezzes to the main dishes. Couples with magnificent views, this has to be one of the more romantic spots on the Bosphorous. Be prepared though...food this quality doesn't come on the cheap. Look at this dinner as an investment, even by Istanbul standards.

After getting a rave from our hotel concierge (who is probably being rewarded for it) we were bitterly disappointed by Park Fora. It was a very cold evening for September and all the seating is outside albeit there are a few warming lamps. The first course mezzos were the blandest I have tasted in Turkey ever. The fish - bonito,... More

Overall a bad experience. Fish was full of bones and I could hardly finish the meal. While I was eating the bread and olive oil the server picked it up and said that the fish was coming which did not show up for a few minutes. Overall very bad experience. Totally overpriced 375 lira for a lobster and mist of... More

We asked our hotel to recommend a restaurant to share a special occasion on our trip to Istanbul. We were thrilled. The ambiance of the outdoor dining on the Bosphorous under stars and twinkling lights were magical. But even better the selection and the freshness of the fish perfectly prepared and served. Just a wonderful night.

We came here for dinner upon recommendation by our hotel concierge on our first night in Istanbul. I saw the mediocre reviews on TripAdvisor and still decided to come because I was tired, jet lagged and couldn't be bothered to find somewhere else. According to other reviews on TripAdvisor, a suspicious number of hotel concierges seem to recommend this place.This... More
